Mcafee ENSM 10.6.5 on MacOS 10.15 Catalina

I am testing Endpoint Security for Mac 10.6.5 on a few test systems before we update the rest of our organization to it. I have come to a potential issue. After pushing ENSM 10.6.5 from EPO to a system on Mac OS Catalina it prompts the user to Provide full disk access to a list of processes (screen shot attached).

My question is why is this not automated. I'm not sure I want to trust all of our users to manually allow these files so that McAfee continues to function. Is this a bug. Other then a MDM what option is there to resolve this.Screen Shot 2019-10-11 at 9.01.50 AM.png

Boy... this is brutal. Between Windows 10 issues with Microsoft and Mcafee not playing nice, now MacOS is doing the same? What a nightmare.

Experiencing the same thing in the few MACs we have in our environment.

I recently upgraded a Mac to Catalina and install ENSM.  I haven't found an easy way to trust those files.  There doesn't seem to be a way to browse to those files from the Privacy Finder. I also tested that attached file on KB91109 and it doesn't appear to work.

I was able to add them. You have to go to Full Disk Access Access on the left pane. Click the lock icon to elevate privilege. Then you select the + icon and it gives you a finder window. Just type the name of each program in the search box and it finds the path. You just repeat this for each of the 4 files. Make sure they have a check mark next to each file added. When I did this fmpd was already in the list i just had to click the check box. Then added the other 3 files.

Thank you.  I was getting hung up with the fact that you have to use the search function in the Finder window to find those files.

you may have trouble to find the files, in that case at the point of search you can press 'Shift+Command+G' then the 'Go to the folder' window will pop up, then you can enter the file path to locate the McAfee processes need to be add
